Purchase Vintage Microphone Pattern
I have the final piece done for my Rock Music mini quilt. The lyrics of a song are very important to me. Now matter how great the accompanying music is, I really can’t listen to a song if the lyrics don’t measure up. Words have such power, they can really excite you and get you all fired up or make you extremely sad. Set them to music and they really touch your heart. I find myself humming at the oddest of times. So I made a Vintage Microphone quilt pattern as an ode to the talented song writers and singers. Do you have a favourite song?
The biggest challenge in drawing this pattern was adhering to the rounded shape of the microphone without making it too complicated. The four sets of grills are made with exactly four sections and they are very straight forward to sew. However, because of the number of bars on the grill, each section has quite a few pieces to sew. Other than that, it comes together pretty quickly. The Vintage Microphone quilt pattern can be found in my shop.
I finally have all three blocks that I am going to use for my Rock Music mini quilt. I am excited to put this together.

Your blocks are incredible and oh so intricate. Well done designing and piecing!

Wow, Soma, that is amazing!! In fact, all three designs are impressive. I really admire people that can do paper piecing – I’m afraid I have to enjoy it from afar, as I don’t have the requisite patience to do it myself! Whoop whoop for you!!

I LOVE your patterns on this post! I will probably be stopping by some time to purchase the guitar pattern as my daughter loves to play. I could make several guitar blocks and put them all into one quilt.

Another great pattern! It makes me want to design some more patterns too, :-) at the moment I am a bit FMQ-obsessed but I will go back to drawing up some soon, I hope!
Have e wonderful Wednesday!!!

I LOVE your vintage microphone! Ditto on the song lyrics. It doesn’t matter how great the music is, it becomes less than ordinary if the lyrics are terrible.
